    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems in November 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process happened over a few days. I had a phone conversation with three different people and from what I understand, they discussed the candidates together and they selected the best person for the job.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was impressed with the people I spoke and met with at Cisco, but was disappointed by their lack of follow up. After investing 7 hours of my time interviewing with them, I never received the courtesy of a reply informing me I was not a fit, despite follow up emails thanking them for their time and inquiring on my status. I ultimately accepted a job elsewhere and am very happy in my new role, but found their failure to communicate to be very unprofeasional.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiter who explained the role. I was then invited to meet with the hiring manager. After a one hour interview I was invited back to meet with 2 HR partners. Following those face-to-face interviews I met with 2 of the 3 leaders the position would support. I talked to the third leader on the phone.
    The recruiter kept me updated about the status of the recruiting process the entire team.

    Interview Questions

    • Cisco is not an easy place to navigate. How would you assimilate yourself into the organization?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much negotiation needed. They made me an offer that exceeded my expectations.
